Support Ricky’s Riders During Cycle for Survival 2022

Supporting rare cancer research is important to me, which is why I’ve joined Cycle for Survival leading Team Ricky’s Riders to raise money to help beat rare cancers.

This year will be my eleventh year of Cycle for Survival taking place in an outdoor event on May 14th and I’m asking for your help to meet our team fundraising goal of $10,000.  If you can contribute, any amount makes a difference.

Why do I ride? For my father, Richard. 

My father, Richard, was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin’s Lymphoma a few years ago. He’s currently in remission and doing well following a stem cell transplant and extensive treatment.  He was fortunate to benefit from cancer treatment and advances, but not everyone is as lucky. I ride for my father, but also for those who aren’t as lucky as him. 

For those of you who don’t know about the cause, Cycle for Survival is the movement to beat rare cancers. As a community, we ride in support of research discoveries and clinical breakthroughs that benefit people all over the world.

Click this link to visit my fundraising page and make a donation that will truly make a difference. Any amount has an impact because 100% of your gift will fund rare cancer research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Rare cancer research is underfunded, and people who are diagnosed with these cancers are often left with limited treatment options — sometimes none. The generosity of donors helps fill that funding gap, giving people with a rare cancer hope for a better future.

Please support Ricky’s Riders in the fight to beat rare cancers during #CycleforSurvival 2021

Cycle for Survival is important to me. This year I’m thrilled to be participating in my decade ride (10th year) of Cycle for Survival on May 2 outside at MetLife Stadium. I’m raising money for Cycle for Survival to support rare cancer research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Every dollar raised by this movement continues to change — and save — lives

Cycle for Survival provides crucial funding to hundreds of doctors and scientists in pursuit of bold ideas. The discoveries made through research and clinical trials powered by this community have led to the FDA approval of new drugs and diagnostic tools that are helping people around the world.

Since the first event in 2007, there have been many great advances in rare cancer research and treatment. But there’s still more work to be done, and we won’t stop fighting until every person facing a rare cancer has a treatment for their disease.

I’m raising money for rare cancer research.

Why? For my father, Richard.

A few years ago my father Richard was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He fought his cancer for years and after several rounds of chemo, immunotherapy and a stem cell transplant he is in remission. Even though he beat cancer, his battle continues every day, which is why I’m participating in my 10th year of Cycle for Survival — the movement to beat rare cancers. http://bit.ly/mpcycle21

My father has been fortunate to benefit from cancer treatment and advances, but not everyone is as lucky. I ride for my father, but also for those who aren’t as lucky as him. I encourage you to visit my fundraising page and make a donation that will truly make a difference.  

Here are three reasons why I hope you will support me:

1. Rare cancer research is underfunded, leaving people who are diagnosed with these cancers few options — sometimes none. Thanks to the generosity of donors, people with a rare cancer have hope for a better future with new and improved treatments.

2. 100% of your gift (yes, every dollar!) will fund research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). All funds are allocated within six months after fundraising ends. Cycle for Survival will share what was funded and continue to keep you updated on the advances you support.

3. Discoveries can benefit people with cancer worldwide. MSK is a world leader in cancer research, treatment, and education, caring for people with over 400 subtypes of cancer each year. They collaborate with institutions around the world to accelerate treatment options for all patients.

Your support makes so much possible. Together we will continue to advance our mission to beat rare cancers.

Cycle for Survival is important to me. This year I’m participating in my 9th year of Cycle for Survival on February 1, 2020.

He’s been kicking cancers ass after numerous rounds of chemo, immunotherapy and a stem cell transplant, he is in remission and doing well.

Please Support the Friends of Zachary Fund

I wanted to take a moment and remind everyone that life can change in the blink of an eye.  Zachary Bernstein, my colleague’s son was diagnosed last May (at the age of 10) with an inoperable brain tumor, and unfortunately the prognosis is terminal. Zachary is fighting as hard as he can and has the overwhelming love and support of great parents and an incredible community. His family has setup a blog here to share his journey battling cancer, where you can follow along updates. 

No child should have to go through what Zachary is going through. Please visit
